    Default Finding Who Owns Farmland

    Hello All!

    Brand spanking new hunter here (just passed my PAL and Hunting course this weekend). I have a question that I have been struggling with the while trying to plan for my first hunt next year (thanks a lot RCMP for a 3 month wait time for PAL's).

    I live in Cannington, a community in the middle of endless farm fields. Many of these farms are nice locations for hunting turkey or rabbit because of the combination of streams, fields and forests. How do you know who owns certain fields or forests? Is there any way to find out this information so you can ask for permission to hunt on their land?

    I am hoping some of you more experienced hunters can help me out with this. Thank you so much!

    your best bet is to start knocking on doors and mayby asking around at the local coffee shop.farmers have a habit of hitting the local coffee hangouts after chores around here anyways .Dutch

    Like Dutch has said, I would knock on doors and you'll be surprised what information you can find. Locals usually all know who owns what land.

    Knock on the doors and introduce yourself, not a lot of farmers would be too receptive to somebody who looked up their names, addresses, and holdings through online and municipal office sleuthing.

    Look for the farmhouse. Drive up (probably not on a Sunday). Knock. Be well dressed. Be polite.

    So what I am gathering is find the fields/forests you are interested, and ask the farm houses that are nearby to learn who owns those parcels of land.

    Thank you to all who gave your advice!

    Go to the local feed store and make small talk with who ever is behind the counter. They will know the farmers in the area and the gossip. Plus farmers hang around at them and swop story's.

    Go up and ask. Simple as that. Maybe introduce yourself first.

    Land registry office will have all you want to know. The rest is up to you.
